Honda is kicking its motorsport efforts into high gear. After the new WTCC campaign, they are now going to enter the CR-Z in the Japanese Super GT series.

Yesterday they revealed plans to take part in the 2013 (and some of the 2012 events) World Touring Car Championship with a Mugen-powered Civic prepared by J.A.S. team. The Super GT CR-Z will be fielded by Team Mugen, in association with M-TEC Co.

Details on the CR-Z GT300 are scarce, but Honda has confirmed it will be powered by a hybrid powertrain. It will join the HSV-010 GT which competes in the GT500 class.

Starting this year, Honda will enter the GT300 class with a CR-Z equipped with a racing hybrid system, and through a joint project with M-TEC Co., Ltd. Honda will support the racing activities of TEAM MUGEN, which plans to enter GT300 from Round 4 (Sportsland SUGO). The development driver will be Hideki Mutoh, who has competed in the IndyCar® Series and the GT500 class of SUPER GT.
